until it stops and then lift up see figures
7c and 7e.
2. To assemble or reassemble blade/base
assembly into the blender, reverse the
steps that were used in the above to
remove it.
3. The blender is used in mode 3, see
table 1. To place the blender on the
power unit the arm must be rotated to
the down position. Depress the release
button, see 4a, and lower the arm so
that the arm is vertical and the highspeed drive is straight up. If you have
not already done so, remove the motor
drive cover from the high-speed drive
and place the blender on the high-speed
drive and turn counterclockwise to lock
the blender in place.
Figure 6.
CAUTION
Blade/base assembly is very sharp.
Handle with care.
Placing Blender into Operation
Make sure that the power unit’s rotary
switch is in the off position, “O/Off.” Pull
the electrical cord or unwind it to the
necessary length and then plug into the
wall outlet. The blender is now ready for
operation.
Normally when blending, the blender jar
should be filled with the entire amount of
material to be blended, if possible, before
switching the appliance to On. The cover
and cover closure should always be in place
after filling the blender jar and before
switching the power unit to On. Any
subsequent additions to the blended
material should be made through the cover
opening, see figure 8. For solids and/or
granular material, remove the cover closure/
funnel to add the material, as shown in
figure 8a. For liquids, the closure/funnel
may be left in place and the liquids can be
added by pouring them into the closure/
funnel, see figure 8b.
Figure 7.
If the blade assembly is too tight to
turn by hand, the locking ring may
be used to loosen the blade assembly,
as shown in figure 7d. After loosening,
turn the blade assembly counterclockwise until it stops and then lift up.
The gasket may be removed for
cleaning, as shown in figure 7f.

When the blender is being used on dry
materials, such as nuts or bread, the best
results will be obtained when the blender
jar is filled with approximately 1/2 cup of
material to be blended. If the blender does
not start (even after trying the highest
speed), the blade has become blocked by
the contents. The power unit should be:
Figure 8.
1. Switched to off, “O/Off,” and unplugged.
2. The mixture should be removed and the
contents at the bottom of the jar
loosened.

unit, the contents of the blender may now
be poured into a suitable container or bowl,
as desired. Replace the cover on the highspeed drive.
Mayonnaise Recipe
whole egg
cup of vegetable oil
tablespoons lemon juice or light
vinegar
teaspoon sugar
teaspoon dry mustard
teaspoon of salt
cup of vegetable oil
Mix all ingredients, except final 2/3’s cup
of oil, for a few seconds at speed 1, then
quickly pour the oil in through the opening
in the cover in a uniformly thick stream, as
shown in figure 8b. Operate the blender at
speeds 1 or 4 until mixture is thick and
smooth (approximately 10–20 seconds).
Makes 1 1/4 cups.
Care and Cleaning of Blender
All components of the blender, except the
blade/base assembly, are dishwasher safe.
It is recommended that the blade/base
assembly be cleaned only under flowing
water rather than in the dishwasher. Soap
and detergent will tend to wash out the
bearing lubricant of the blade/base
assembly. Do not use scouring cleaners on
any of the blender parts.
Tips:
The blender should be operated with careful
consideration as to what is required and/or
desired. The speed at which the blender is
operated and the length of operation for a
given job will depend upon the degree of
fineness desired or the amount being
blended.
The power unit of the kitchen machine
should be cleaned with a clean, damp cloth
only. Never use coarse or caustic cleaning
products to clean this appliance. Never
immerse the power unit in water.

or meat and grating of vegetables and hard
cheese.
Use of Slicer/Shredder
Before beginning to use this or any other
attachment, make sure that the power unit
is on a smooth, clean, suitable work
surface and switched to Off position,
“O/Off,” and that you have removed the
motor drive cover.
The MUM 4635 UC and the MUM 4420 UC
Bosch Compact Series Kitchen Machines
include the MUZ 4 DS2 continuous
shredder attachment. The continuous
shredder attachment consists of, figure 9:
1. Before using the continuous shredder
for the first time, it is recommended that
the cover closure/pusher, cover, discs,

continuous shredder are dishwasher
safe. After washing, rinse well and
dry before using.
WARNING
The blades on the discs are very sharp.
Handle with care.
2. The continuous shredder is used in
mode 2, see table 1. To place the
continuous shredded on the power unit,
the arm must be rotated to the
horizontal position. Depress the release
button, see 4a, and move the arm as
necessary so that the arm is horizontal.
If you have not already done so, remove
the motor drive cover from the midspeed drive, as shown in figure 10.
Figure 9.

Placing Slicer/Shredder into Operation
Make sure the power unit is on a smooth,
clean, suitable work surface and switched
to the Off position, “O/Off.” Pull the electrical
cord or unwind the electrical cord to the
necessary length and plug into a convenient
outlet. The continuous shredder is now
ready for use.
Figure 10.
Assemble the continuous shredder in the
order as shown in figure 9:
1. Insert the disc holder/slinger into
the housing.
2. Select disc to be used and,
making sure that the side desired
is facing upward, place it on disc
holder.
3. Place cover on housing and turn
counterclockwise until cover snaps
into place and arrows are aligned,
see figure 11.
4. The continuous shredder is now
assembled.
5. Place bowl on the power unit.
Depress the release button and
raise arm so that the bowl can be
placed in position, and then lower
the arm to horizontal position.
6. Place continuous shredder on the
mid-speed drive of the power unit,
with the arm in the horizontal
position and turn counterclockwise
until it locks into position.
Figure 11.
Place items to be sliced, shredded or
grated in feeding funnel and be sure to use
the pusher to feed items into the discs when
in operation.
Learning how to feed food properly into the
feed funnel is the most important factor for
proper slicing and grating:
17
1. For long slices or long shreds, place
food into the feeding funnel lengthwise.
2. For short or circular slices, place food
in the feeding tube on end. For
example, If you wish to have circular
slices of zucchini or carrots:
• cut to length not to extend above the
top of the feeding tube.
• place the cut zucchini or carrots in
the feeding tube on end until the
feeding tube is packed.
4. Do not overcook potatoes that are to
be sliced. Also it is recommended that
you let them cool first. Potatoes must
be cool and firm to obtain the regular
slices.
If the slicer/shredder does not start (even
after trying the highest speed) the disc has
become blocked by the contents. The
power unit should be:
1. Switched to Off position, “O/Off,” and
unplugged.
2. The continuous shredder should be
removed from the power unit, the cover
removed and the items causing the
blockage removed.
To slice a single narrow item, a carrot for
example:
• place the carrot in the feeding funnel
opposite the cutting edge of the disc.
The wall of the feeding funnel will then serve
to hold the piece vertical.
Removing Contents
Before beginning to remove the contents
from the bowl, make sure that the power
unit has been turned to the Off position,
“O/Off.” The continuous shredder may be
removed from the power unit by turning the
shredder clockwise while lifting. With the
continuous shredder removed from the
power unit, depress the release button and
move the arm upward until the bowl can be
removed. The contents of the bowl may now
be poured into a suitable container or bowl,
as desired.
When using the continuous shredder, be
sure to watch the level in the bowl and stop
the slicing, shredding or grating before the
level of the material being sliced, shredded
or grated blocks the discharge tube.
Slicing and shredding tips:
1. Shopping for fruits and vegetables that
will fit into the feeding funnel will simplify
food preparation.
Care and Cleaning
of Continuous Shredder
All components of the continuous shredder
are dishwasher safe. Do not use scouring
cleaners on any of the continuous shredder
parts.
2. Foods that are to be used together may
be sliced together. This can be used to
your advantage. For example, green
onions and celery are often used
together, but feeding the green onions
into the feeding funnel alone is difficult.
Try slicing the green onions at the same
time as the celery by interspersing
them in the feeding funnel with the
celery.
The power unit of the kitchen machine
should be cleaned with a clean, damp cloth
only. Never use coarse or caustic cleaning
products to clean this appliance. Never
immerse the power unit in water.
3. Use the slicing disc to shred lettuce.
